Most Underrated Starter Pokemon


The Top Ten

1 Chespin Chespin

I think he is the best out of the generation 6 starters

Seriously, Chespin is by far the most underrated Pokemon. When my friends played Pokemon X and Y. EVERYBODY chose fennekin and froakie... I had never seen anybody. In YouTube or anywhere use Chespin. I feel sad for this little guy :( - TabbyTurbo

No, usually people choose cheaspin and froakie nobody chooses gene kin because of Delphox - Hspencer

2 Tepig Tepig

Best Fire Starter ever! It's design when fully evolved is awesome and when starting out it's cute, It has a versatile move pool with options like flamethrower, Fire blast, brick break, focus blast, rollout, stone edge, grass knot, and even scald, and it has the stats to back them up. Low speed? Flame charge will fix that. Low defense? Set up a dual screen prior. It's not the most conventional fire starter, but it is really useful once you get used to it and you can make it different every time you play through with it. That's why I think it's the best and deserves more love. - SigmaScott4

Even though he is the third in a fire-fighting line, he is still good. Great physical sweeper!

How's Chespin Underrated? Tepig is awesome!

He was the first starter I got. I named him "BACON MASTER".

3 Bulbasaur Bulbasaur Bulbasaur, known as Fushigidane in Japan, is the first Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Poor Bulbasaur, he was always shadowed by charmander and squirtle. He is cute and powerful, therefore, I think he should be number one

I love Bulbasaur! He's so cute! Even though I like Charmander too, I feel like he gets picked more than Bulbasaur and Squirtle...

My favorite Pokemon poor him lets just say I argue all the time in his honor against the charmander lovers ugh

Best pokemon ever.

4 Chikorita Chikorita

Chikorita is a TANK. He/She can take a flamethrower 3 times! Amazing!

She's that overrated that people still don't think she's overrated because they might be forgotten her

EXTREMELY UNDERRATED! While she's very weak with fighting gyms and other, and final evolution is so bland that Bayleef is so much detailed and better designed than Meganium, especially Chikorita's design is better than Meganium! But she need lots of love... Some people does love the Chikorita! I'm glad that, instead all of these Charmanders Charmanders and Charmanders...

O come on,chikorita should be number one! This starter is WAY overshadowed by totodile and typhlosion. And truth be told it's very good once u get the hang of it

6 Torchic Torchic

He's not underrated or overrated

Underrated? This is no doubt one of the most overrated starters ever, I mean without mega, Blaziken is in Ubers and has one of the best abilities a medium fast Pokémon would dream, Speed Boost.

7 Snivy Snivy

This Pokemon is now overrated, because all the time they do saying "Like if you think Snivy is the best! " and etc, and this is not even fair, Tepig is little bit hated than Snivy and everyone thinks it's badass and cool and cute, I don't think so it's kinda weird, but hey it's my opinion.

A ivy is super underrated. Once you get your hands on a serperior and a lawnmower rotom, you can switch out leaf storms with the recoil having no effect!

It and its evolutions are cool looking.

Kind of weird because it was overrated and oshawatt was hated but then because of that it is underrated

8 Popplio Popplio

I agree

Popplio is cute! But every one chooses Rowlet and Litten. to be honest I chose litten

9 Delphox Delphox

Should be #1. People don't hate Chespin.

Way overhated.

Why do people hate Delphox?

Try to find a youtuber that likes Delphox.
...That's right, you can't.

He's really cute and really good and for what! He's the most hated and frankly most underrated water starter and better yet, the most underrated starter!

The Contenders

11 Mudkip Mudkip Mudkip, known in Japan as Mizugorou, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Everyone loves mudkip. He isn't underrated

I agree. When playing Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, or Alpha Sapphire, people always go with either Treeko or Torchic.


12 Charmander Charmander Charmander, known as Hitokage in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Everybody hate this pokemon and you don't put he in the top 10 of this list,whata hell

13 Squirtle Squirtle Squirtle, known as Zenigame in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It was originally conceived by Game Freak's character development team and finalized by Chaniah Pantry. It is a squirrel-turtle hybrid .
